No Travel Exhaustion, Feel Fortunate To Play IPL: MI's Trent Boult
While the country is in the grip of the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic, the cricketers participating in the Indian Premier League (IPL) feel relieved as they are not being asked to travel every other day as they used to during the previous editions of the tournament.
The last two editions of the cash-rich IPL have been held in limited venues ensuring less to no travel exhaustion for players. While the 2020 edition took place in the UAE with only three venues and entailed no air travel and ensured a team's stay in only one hotel throughout the tournament, the 2021 edition is being played in a caravan set-up.
The first batch of matches is being held in Chennai and Mumbai while the second batch of matches will be held in Ahmedabad and Delhi. The action will then shift to Kolkata and Bengaluru before the play-offs happen in Ahmedabad.
